Walnut needed - 6 replies
I made a cane handle for a fellow lumberjock and it turns out that we had a bit of miss-communication. He wanted a topper for a staff, and I made a cane handle. So here I am with a handle, but no material to make the cane. I’m wondering if someone could help me out with a piece long enough and thick enough to make the cane. It needs to...

Tool complaints - 30 replies
I don’t want to be a bother but it would be really nice if people didn’t complain so much about tools in the forum section. If you bought a tool and are having trouble you should post it in the Reviews section. Isn’t that what it’s for. Furthermore, you get what you pay for and if you aren’t buying a top quality ...

I recently posted a topic about Investors and had little response. I’ve also posted on other sites and had no luck either. It seems as though you have to be established in order to get an investor. If I were established I wouldn’t need an investor. I’d go to the bank if I needed something. So, with that in mind I am now havi...

Investors - 5 replies

The idea is internet based and I would need to pay for a web designer, the hosting, marketing, etc. This would be a website that is very beneficial to the woodworking industry and I am very excited about it, although wit...

Osagemans Spoon Challenge Reminder - 9 replies
With the increasing number of new projects each project gets bumped off the front page relatively quickly. I wanted to remind everyone of the contest that was posted in the projects section. After I posted my contest I realized that I should have posted it as a forum topic, that way it would pop up to the top when someone responds. Next time ...

The internet - 60 replies
I’m not sure if this is going to be a rant but just to warn you it may get that way. First off it’s obvious that we all come on here to lumberjocks, post projects, jokes, etc. We do this to be noticed, praised, or to feel like we helped someone. That’s fine. It’s very cool to be part of a community where you can share w...

ripped off - 48 replies
About six weeks ago or so (probably more) I was forced to vacate my shop so the new tenant could move his crap in. Which had me upset to begin with because I talked to him and he told me to push everything to one corner and keep them there until they sold. I think he got upset because I wouldn’t sell them to him for a lowball price. Any...

Teaching - 26 replies
Okay I have to say that being out of work and unemployed is getting old, and I’m starting to think my problems are going to get much bigger.

New sculpture - 3 replies
Well I’ve been working on my new sculpture for a few days now. I have to say that the maple is tough to carve sometimes. I almost gave up on it today because a huge section broke out. Well the entire thing broke vertually in half and I had to glue it together and walk away from it for the day. Hopefully tomorrow goes a little better for...
